My husband asked me to file a joint tax return without telling me he owes back taxes

Sunday 16:19 GMT

I was not aware of the debt my husband racked up, even when tax time came around and he asked me to sign our joint tax returns.

Among them: “You establish that at the time you signed the joint return you did not know, and had no reason to know, that there was an understatement of tax. Taking into account all the facts and circumstances, it would be unfair to hold you liable for the understatement of tax.”

Midwest, South face 'potentially unprecedented' flooding through May, NOAA says

Sunday 13:34 GMT

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released its spring outlook on Thursday, stating that nearly two-thirds of the lower 48 states face an elevated risk of flooding through May, with the potential for major or moderate flooding in 25 states.

While floodwaters may have receded in parts of the Midwest that have been inundated since the "bomb cyclone" triggered a devastating deluge earlier this month, forecasters are warning that snowmelt and heavy spring rains are creating the threat for major flooding through May.

The Awfully Big Adventure: Michael Jackson in the Afterlife by Paul Morley – review

Sunday 13:34 GMT

The public definition of Michael Jackson is undergoing a paroxysm of sorts – it’s just not quite the fugue state detailed in this meditation by British journalist, broadcaster and prose stylist Paul Morley.

Faber had a similar idea in putting out The Awfully Big Adventure, a long pamphlet about the ongoing significance of Michael Jackson. From its title on in, Morley’s book cannot help but feel behind the curve, even as Morley agonises about how he – and we – should feel about Jackson and his works now.

The Other Americans by Laila Lalami – review

Sunday 13:34 GMT

Laila Lalami’s rich, polyphonic fourth novel The Other Americans, her first to be set in the present-day US, centres on the hit-and-run killing of Driss, a Moroccan grandfather and restaurant owner who, as a philosophy student in the early 80s, fled a crackdown on anti-royal dissent in Casablanca to settle with his wife in California.

As Lalami describes the impact of Driss’s death on fellow residents of his small suburb in the Mojave desert, the story unfolds as a state-of-America family saga told as a slow-burn detective story in which there are no obvious leads; the sole witness, Efraín, from Mexico, didn’t intervene or call the police, fearful of drawing attention to his family ever since a friend found herself deported after calling the cops on a violent neighbour.

'Empire' star Serayah McNeill wishes Jussie Smollett 'best of luck' amid alleged hate crime hoax

Sunday 16:19 GMT

CRISIS EXEC: JUSSIE SMOLLETT'S ALLEGED HATE CRIME HOAX 'WILL FOREVER DEFINE HIM'. “I think it definitely has an effect on everyone,” she admitted.

That news may come as a blow to Smollett, who was accused of staging his own hate crime in an effort to increase his salary on the series — an allegation Smollett and his attorneys have vehemently denied. In January, Smollett told police that two masked men attacked him, put a rope around his neck and poured bleach on him as he was walking home from a Subway restaurant.

Happy 70th birthday to the 7-inch vinyl: Alan Cross

Sunday 15:24 GMT

After teasing news of the new format through late 1948 and early 1949 (RCA was looking to put a crimp in the marketing plans for Columbia’s album), the world was finally introduced to the 7-inch, 45 RPM single, which made its official debut on March 31, 1949.

Even when rock began to explore the creative and artistic possibilities of the album around 1965, 7-inch singles were still the heart and soul of this music for another decade.

‘Ian Curtis wanted to make extreme music, no half measures’

Sunday 10:49 GMT

Bernard Sumner (Joy Division): I felt that even though we were expecting this music to come out of thin air, we never, any of us, were interested in the money it might make us.

Richard Boon (Buzzcocks manager): I met Ian Curtis on 10 November 1976 at the Electric Circus [venue], where Buzzcocks, in the tradition of doing it for yourself, had hired the Electric Circus and brought [punk band] Chelsea up from London.

My wife’s out, and I’m failing to get our boys to bed

Saturday 08:04 GMT

We stagger our boys’ bedtimes by half an hour, and the two younger ones came to see me to explain that they couldn’t sleep.

I explained that they would be allowed 15 minutes to watch television as long as they went to bed the second I told them to. They agreed wholeheartedly, and I sat with them with the confidence of a man who thought he had been firm, when in actual fact he has authorised a completely unprecedented late television session because he can’t parent his own kids.
